During the winter months of 2005/2006, we totally renovated the Huitema sea-going scow. The sea-going scow was built in 1978, however it was sailed actively for 4 years.
It is fitted with a Farryman diesel 30-HP engine and is a manageable yacht with a large navigational area. Considering the size of the yacht, it is definitely also perfect for use on the Frisian canals and lakes. The yacht is recommended for people with little flat-bottomed sailing experience, but is also totally seaworthy for the IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea. It is quite simply an ideal holiday yacht.
The technology on the sea-going scow has been modified to meet today’s requirements. Hot-air heating has been incorporated and the interior has been modified for the charter market.
Since the spring of 2006, we have been able to offer you a safe, secure and fun sailing yacht for 5 people. Regular maintenance and the care bestowed on the yacht by our team guarantees that the vessel is always in perfect condition.
With this ship you can book a two-day course of 520 euros. You will learn everything about the ship and receive professional training to sail and maneuver the ship. You will also learn how to deal with all technical matters on board.
The course takes place on the first rental day from 13.00 – 19.00 hours and on the second rental day from 10.00 – 17.00 hours.
As from 2018, people hiring yachts will be able to order their shopping here and have this delivered to the harbour (only for yachts in Workum):

The ‘hired’ skipper is able to navigate alone, using the engine. When sailing, this is a different story. The guests are expected to help to sail the yacht. Experience isn’t necessary, but is helpful!
We also offer an optional training course, to learn the basics of all aspects of flat-bottomed sailing.
